Microsoft does not support the use of NFS.

Hi,

I’m an article writer. Recently I wrote an article covering storage for virtualization. But I’ve found that Microsoft does not support the use of NFS shares with Hyper-V. 

Then I started to research about this, but I didn’t get a solution.

Take a look at the error:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Error:

The server encountered an error while creating TESTVM.

The operation failed.

Failed to create external configuration store at 'z:TESTVM:The system cannot find the path specified.(Virtual machine ID 0x80070003) The Operation failed.User 'PP02-W2k8-X64Administrator 'failed to create external configuration store at'z:TESTVM":The system cannot find the path specified.(Virtual machine ID 0x80070003)

 

So, I need some advice for this.

If anyone knows about how to solve this problem please share with me.

Thanks a lot.

Here, In the above scenario you are trying to install a VM in an nfs share like external storage. When ever a VM is created it will create few system related files in your system. These files try to access only files of your system rather an external device. Before trying in nfs try to install the VM in your pen drive which doesn't work. So, obviously even in nfs also it doesn't work. rather you can do one thing. take a copy of your existing VM virtual hard disk file put in your nfs and check whether you are able to create a VM in that way. It will work in this case vhd was created in your system rather in nfs.

I found out that microsoft hyper-v is not supported the NFS because hyper-v does not support booting virtual hard disk. And because of the high-level back ups is not possible with file streams, and because they depends on block-level volume mapping. i hope it helps. god bless and thank you.
